Penny will be remembered as a strong, selfless, courageous woman who was loved by so many. Her smile and laugh were contagious. The love she had for her children was unconditional. They were the light of her life, and she would do anything in the world for them. Her dogs, Rocky and Paisley, also meant the world to her, she treated them as if they were her children.

She loved spending time with family and taking beach trips every year. So many memories we will cherish forever.
